When Joan Laporta landed at Barcelona to start his second term as president of the Barca club, many were those who thought about his possibility of being able to carry out a complete regeneration of a squad that has been a disaster in recent years after a grotesque management carried out by the previous president Josep Maria Bartomeu, with the Camp Nou team having a delicate economic and sporting situation that was expected to change throughout this summer.
However, the reality has been very different from the expectation, since the sports management headed by Mateu Alemany and Ramon Planes has not been able at any time to look for departure destinations for several footballers who are occupying a significant salary mass in the club such as Samuel Umtiti, Clement Lenglet, Philippe Coutinho, Sergi Roberto, Miralem Pjanic or Martin Braithwaite among others.
To the inability to release all these players, Barcelona adds the historical loss of a Leo Messi who has set course for Paris Saint Germain, or Antoine Griezmann who has done the same to Atletico and on top of that through a transfer with an option to buy for 50 million for which Barcelona will not receive a single euro until 2023, which is added to the lack of first-level signings, apart from Memphis Depay, Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Luuk de Jong the four incorporations that the Barca team made in this transfer market.
With all these factors and an even worse squad than last year, Barcelona has a 2021-2022 season ahead in which things have to go very well so that it can raise a title and be able to forget a real nightmare in which Joan Laporta will have to give explanations, since he promised at the time a cleaning that has not been carried out and who knows if it can be carried out next summer.
